Is it worth the extra hundred and fifty pounds.

The difference in price is only 50 with the current cashback. Absolute no brainer, 40d at 499 after cashback.

If it's in the UK, that's a fantastic price when you think what dslrs were going for not so long ago.

Look at it this way: if you get at least five years' use out of the 40D, that's just 30 extra you've paid per year. That's just a round of drinks down here in London. You've made the right choice!

I doubt he will keep it 5 years.At the moment technology changes so fast it would have to be upgraded in 2 years

Well I kept my 300D for 4 years, and think that 5 years will be possible for the 40D. and then you have the differences to think of, handling etc.

I am guessing his 10D is 4 to 5 years old, and why not? Lets face it many of us need no more that 10 or 12mp, and if we like the images today. A 10D can still produce good images today.

LOL. And I'm using a Nikon D1H... six years old and still shooting lovely 2.7MP images. Who needs 10MP+!

Depends on how big you want to print.

It depends on your individual needs and how mch use your camera gets. Mine rarely last more than 2 years. Just had a canon MKIIN develop the well known banding at high ISO's. The solution is a new imager unit at 950 plus a couple of hundred labour. It's 2 years old and has done over 600,000 frames so it has been written off and replaced by another MKIII.

Oh yeah? I'm still using my 300V - and still no sign of banding. Not even Billy Cotton! LOL!

Just bought a 40D. what a step up from the 30D.I must admit I didnt expect to find that much difference. Handling is better, viewfinder is better, eventhe shutter release seems quieterThe price its at the moment its a giveaway.
